Comments Concerning the ANA World’s Fair of Money in Chicago

By Q. David Bowers, Founder

I left New Hampshire on Friday, August 7, heading to Illinois where I and family members spent a weekend with some friends. Then on Monday it was to the World’s Fair of Money at the Convention Center in Rosemont. The first event of the show was the Professional Numismatists Guild banquet that evening. It was a grand event, nice camaraderie, good food, and a fine way to start the show.
